: I took your advice and used the heat loss calc. from Slant/Fin. I got a total heat loss of almost 50,000 BTU/HR. Is this correct? I'm not sure.
: Just to give some info about my house: It is located in central Connecticut where the average overnight temp falls into the teens and 0'F isn't that unusual in the middle of winter. It's a 2500sq.ft colonial, 1st floor has 9 ft. ceilings, double hung wood windows, 14 years old, full unfinished basement.
: Some of the values for the heat loss calc were: Infiltration Factor .012, Door and Glass factor .65, the System Design Water Temp was 180 degrees (I think this should have been 120F since that is the temp I have set for the 40 gal. SuperStor hot water tank.)
: The calc never asked if the boiler makes the hot water for the superstor as well, which of course it does.
: Any advice on the values that I used? Or, the calculation I came up with? I can't believe that the number I came up with does not take into account the SuperStor?
